I went back to a pre-plugins project. And yes, I have the google dev console, merchant account, and Admobs Ads account. All have been setup.
After publishing an alpha test on the play store, i'm going back and redoing everything (not the game itself). Deleted the app within admobs, dev console and play game services. My testers couldn't get the alpha test, kept saying app is not available.
I'll be using only cranberrygame's cordova plugins: CordovaAdmob, CordovaIAP, CordovaGame. The one thing that confuses me is where to get the "Android Application License Key " for the CordovaIAP. One post says its the super long key that says:
YOUR LICENSE KEY FOR THIS APPLICATION
Base64-encoded RSA public key to include in your binary. Please remove any spaces. in the Services & APIs.
Another one says its a 16 digit number. Couldn't get neither to work.
It'll probably be a day or two before i can go forward. My laptop is dying and need to find a place to charge it.
Thanks for all the input, brothers.
